MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - One of Wisconsin’s largest industrial firms is losing its CEO.

Joy Global of Milwaukee said Thursday that Michael Sutherlin will step down at the end of the year – and he’ll be replaced by another company executive, Edward Doheny II.

The 66-year-old Sutherlin will turn over the reins in December, before retiring on February 1st of next year.
